Students involved in DI learn higher order thinking and learn to
excel in creative and critical thinking, collaborative problem
solving, and project management. Students who have
participated in Destination Imagination say they believe
participation helped them improve their grades and do better
in school, improved their self-confidence, helped them become
better communicators, enhanced their respect for others, and
improved their creativity and problem solving skills. Check out the DI, Inc. page on WHY DI to learn more!

Centerville DI is currently in need of Building Coordinators for the following schools: Driscoll, Normandy, Tower Heights, and Watts! Without a Building Coordinator for these schools there will be NO DI for any students at these schools. The Building Coordinator is provided a supplemental contract with Centerville City Schools and works under the guidance of the District Coordinators with support from other Building Coordinators and the Centerville DI Parent Support Group. Help and assistance is provided along every step of the way. There is also a training session in August. If you would be interested in taking on the position at one of these schools or would like further information, please contact Dee Gordon, Centerville DI DIstrict Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP. The positions need to be filled before August 1.
Let's give a big round of applause to the FAIRY BOARD INVESTIGATORS! This CMS team of Magsig and Watts students finished THIRD in the world in the service learning challenge at DI Global Finals! How increDIble!!! The team began their journey back in the fall when they partnered with the Centerville-Washington Park District to help eliminate invasive honeysuckle from local parks as their service project. They then created a funny and entertaining performance with a mash-up of board games and fairy tales. The puns kept on coming throughout their story and left us all amazed with the way they interTWINED the honeysuckle and their characters. Impressive all around for this group of sixth graders managed by Harry and Michelle Oxrider. Big Congratulations!
Have you been hearing about the Centerville DI Parent Support Group? Have you been wondering exactly what it is and what it does? The Centerville DI Parent Support Group (PSG) is a group of deDIcated parents just like you that give a small amount of time each month to help make the Centerville DI program run smoothly and successfully. The group is responsible for bringing you many of the events that you know and love - Parent Info Night, Picture Day, Dress Rehearsal, and (best of all!) DIssert Banquet! However, there are many positions on the PSG that remain unfilled this year and we need your help! Being a member of the PSG doesn't involve much time. The group meets once a month for about an hour and attendance at the meetings isn't mandatory to help out. There are several positions that can be done from the comfort of your home at your convenience. If you'd like more information or would like to speak with any of the current members, check out the Parent Support Group tab or join us at our next meeting on Sunday, June 16.
